The Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society is pleased to announce their 2011 charity fundraiser. They are selling medallions featuring the likeness of Princess Leia to benefit Operation Troop Appreciation. The medallions cost $10 each + fees and shipping, and can be ordered through the web site at: http://www.pswcs.com/OperationTroopAppreciation/

Operation Troop Appreciation supports deployed military personnel by shipping them comfort items, equipment and other wish list items. In the second quarter of 2011, OTA sent care packages to 71 separate units totaling 6,840 deployed troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. PSWCS is thrilled for the opportunity to help this organization on their mission. Since July of 2004, OTA, a 100% volunteer organization, has granted wishes to over 100,000 troops!

The medallions are 1.75" in diameter with colored enamel on both faces and have been approved by Lucasfilm Ltd. They were produced in a one-time run of 1000 pieces. Each comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Please visit the site for additional details, and thank you for supporting this worthy charity!

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
